The aim of this project is to Increase the eco touristic value and resiliency of the community of Mompiche, a small fishermen’s village in the Coastal region of Ecuador that due to global warming will be facing more challenges. This will be done through the development of the whole town over time with a focus on four main elements, an amphibious fishing market, a bamboo trail, a cultural center and an aquaculture system. Creating a built environment that receives the natural world as an equal shareholder while also giving people a sense of identity and community.
Ecuador has so much to offer the world. It is a land filled with kind and hardworking people, with culture and traditions and with beautiful landscapes. It is time that we start valuing what is ours and start betting on ourselves.
